Talking about sulphur, I have this piece that I've bought some years ago from a flea market in Lisbon, I don't know where it is from. Could it be Italy?

Rather not Italy, could be from El Desierto Mine, Potosí, Bolivia.

Thank you Tobi! The only thing I can say is that I bought it from Portugal 5 or 6 years ago. Other than that I have no clue. I will look for comparable in Potosi.

It could be Spanish, but that is not obvious. Search for 'Conil'

Sure there are several localities for sulphur, but El Desierto produced masses of specimens that look like that, so a "flea market specimen" of lower quality could be most likely from that locality. Maybe you could post a photo of the matrix?

Hello, Tobi!
Thank you! You are right, this specimen doesn't have any remarkable features so It might just be from anywhere. Sure, I can post a picture with the matrix.

Alex

According to the photo of the matrix, I would still say it looks like from El Desierto Mine (but of course this is not a proof).
